Hi Ladies,



I have 4 children - Sabrina (13), Cameron (10), Braden (19 months), and Jonathan (3 months). My husband is a finance manager at a car dealership so he works lots of hours. It's been a bit overwhelming since baby #4 got here, but thankfully the older two help a lot when they are off school. I always wanted 4 when I was young. They are a lot of work but definitely worth it :-)

Thank god that I am able to work from home so that I don't have a childcare center rasing them. your right its a lot of work but definitley worth it :)

My children are Tristian (18), Kaleb (17), Desiree (16), Gaje (12), Mercy (9) and Shy (7). The older ones aren't real excited at all. I work alot of hours and drive 11/2 to get to work. Each pregancy has gotten increasingly more difficult and this one seems to be no differant. I wish I was more excited but I guess I have time to adjust to the idea.

I have 4 kids, two and a 5 year gap and then two again.... I have been able to be a stay at home mom now for 15 years! I have loved it, and now that the youngest is going to kindergarten and thinking about going back to work to help my hubby make some money! It is a lot of pressure on him, and not sure how i will work and take care of everything, that will be the new challenge I guess.... Three boys, 15, 13 and 4.5 and one girl age 8! And it IS expensive!!!

Girl 15, Boys 8, 4, and 1 plus I always have one or two extra of some else's :)

Our girl isn't much help, by my choosing. I was raised in a home where my mother owned a daycare and I had to be a registered assistant. I was always tied down watching everyone else's kids. When we had more kids, we felt we were the ones who decided to have them- not her. Don't get me wrong, she helps out as much as we expect any family member to, but she's not a "built in babysitter" like many ask me and she has never changed a diaper. I think she's rather die first- Teenagers! :)

Alison, Me too, I have 1 girl and 3 boys and our kids ages are VERY close to yours!! 14, 10, 3, 15 mos. Girl is the oldest too and loves her little brood that she fusses over!

I am so glad i found others just like me. I have 3 boys and 1 girl as well, aging 11y, 6y, 20m and 5m. My girl is the second born and she definitely is princess enough for all of them. She was sad at first when we found out we were having another boy, but I just pointed out that she will be able to be her Papa Bear's ( Paternal Grandfather) princess and she won't have to share the role. That made her change her mind quick. But sometimes I wish she had a sister to play with, then she pulls the drama that comes with being a girl!

Yep me too I have 3 boys and 1 girl aged 5, 3, 1, and my little girl is 9 weeks.. I never thought I would have 4 and in fact I had always said I would never have children. Having said that this is them most fabulous ride I have ever been on. I would never change my life despite feeling overwhelmed sometimes. I didn't realise how many of us were out there as all of my mum friends only have one or two kids and think I am stupidly silly for having so many. I love it and want more babes. Well done everyone

My name is Alycia! I have 3 little boys: Collin will be 5 in August, Corey just turned 3 in June, Conner will be 2 in October and I have a little PRINCESS on the way and she is due September 4th! How perfect! My little girl is the baby and her brothers are soooooo excited! They are a lot of work, but well worth it. I am just trying to find some mommy friends out there who have 4 or more kids close in age!

[deleted account]

I also; Kyle is 8, Grace is 5, Fletcher is turning 4,and David is turning 2. David has Down Syndrome so I am busy- but wouldn't change a thing. I do find Grace way more sensitive and emotional than the boys...she is so much like her mother it is scarry- but at least I know how to relate to her?!

Hello Everyone!!
I'm Kesha and have four kids. DeShawn is 12, Corey is 10, Kayleeya is 6, and Kierra is 4.
I knew I wanted to be a mommy and wanted more that one cause I'm an only child and wanted my kids to have each other to play with. I just didn't know that wanting more than one meant I would have 4 lol. But I am blessed and happy to have my kiddies. 2 of each and I am done lol

i got the opposite--3 girls and 1 boy ages 4,3,2, and 3mos. it is overwhelming but it's the best thing that happened in my life. my life has direction and makes me strive more harder to do my responsilbility as a mom. i wouldn't trade being single makes lots of money but lonely and just get wasted from time to time. i've been there and it sucked!!! having four kids is like having four bestfriends for life and it's even better if you have more children as long as you can handle and be responsible for them and also, it takes two couple to make it work. money helps too, to reward yourself for your hard work. remember to make some time with your spouse because sometimes you tend to forget because of overly tired.

Hi i'm new and i also have three boys and one girl Steven 15 jack 13 Lucy 11 Charlie 10.



My two eldest have learning diffs ,ADHD and Jack also has Autisum but they are alot better since becoming teenagers.



The school my youngest go to keep wanting me to take Charlie to see the doc cos they think he has ADHD aswell but i don't think so and my daughter is the bright spark of the family but can be a bit stroppy sometimes lol.



Been with my partner now for 5 years now and been trying to have babies with him.



At this very moment i am going through another miscarriage (aways wanted six but this is now number four i have lost in two years!) so this site is really helping me to focus on something else for a bit.



We all are very lucky to have them as they are to have us so have lots of fun laughter and love

I have 4, with the girl in the middle,   10 -Brett,  8- Matt, 4- Rayley and 1 year old is Bow.



Everyone in my family asks how I deal with them, and even my MIL who had 4 kids (but bigger age differnces, 15, 10, 7 and newborn) cant handle them at the same time.  I guess its just normal for me.  I dont do it well, but I havent lost one so far.  LOL :)

Wow, it really seems that everyone has 3 boys and a girl, I thouhgt I was the only one :-). It can be really tough sometimes but also so much fun. One of the hardest part sometimes is most of our friends have only one or two kids and dont always understand how hard/expensive it is to go do things.

Hi! I also have 3 boys and 1 girl. Philp-11, luke-4, brynn-2 and Eric-6mnths. I have to say she is a big helper with the baby and it is fun to have a girl around. I do understanding about feeling overwhelmed some days i wonder what the heck i did. but it only takes one hug or kiss or I love you Mommy to make it all worth it. Hang in there it is worth it. Enjoy!

Hi Alison- I too have 3 boys and 1 girl. My children range in age form 6 to almost 3 years. The twins are the youngest, they will be three in March, and they are a boy and a girl. I work full time as a French and Spanish teacher so there are days when I get home from work and I feel completely overwhelmed and exhausted. Luckily my husband and I are a great team and I cannot imagine having to do this without him. It is tough, but there is nothing more rewarding. :-)
